When we think of holidays, we think of the 3Fs - Family & Friends & Fun. But these components can be lost to brain injury survivors. When a survivor thinks back to what once was before his or her injury or dwells on the imagined fun of others celebrating the holiday, he or she can feel quite bleak. Understandably so!
This rerun show will discuss feelings and emotions and hopefully offer some suggestions on how folks can avoid the holiday blahs.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!
